Just to add to what Vicki has said: the Gold Award is similar to the First
Class Award, with a few additions (and changes) to the requirements. The most
noteable to me was the change in the Challenges. Where we (First Class era GS)
had different challenges to work on, and earned various challenge pins, there
is only one challenge now, and it is divided into 4 (or 5?) parts. All the
sections have to be completed, before the girl can earn the challenge. There
is also a Cadette challenge (for the Silver Award) and a Senior Challenge
(for the Gold Award). Also there are badges the girls work on now as Seniors
(Interest Project patches). They have to earn 4 of them prior to working on
the Gold Award project.
Daisies are kindergarten girls (sometimes 1st grade) ages 5-6. The Daisy
program is very similar to the program we saw as Brownies. It is a one
year program where they beging to learn about Girl Scouting, through games,
songs and other activities. Brownies now earn Badges called Try-it's, go
on camp outs, sell cookies, etc.
Hope this is of some help.
